Sorry Bill Clinton, but, unlike the years of your presidency, you are living in a world of FACT CHECKERS!!

"He [Obama] has offered a reasonable plan of $4 trillion in debt reduction over a decade. For every $2.5 trillion in spending cuts, he raises a dollar in new revenues, 2.5 to 1. And he has tight controls on future spending."
---Clinton

And we are supposed to BELIEVE that?
From the Washington Post: The repeated claim that Obama¯s budget reduces the deficit by $4 trillion is simply not accurate. Virtually no serious budget analyst agreed with this accounting. Moreover, the administration is also counting $848 billion in phantom savings from winding down the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, even though the administration had long made clear those wars would end.

In other words, by projecting war spending far in the future, the administration is able to claim credit for saving money it never intended to spend. (Imagine taking credit for saving money on buying a new car every year, even though you intended to keep your car for 10 years.)

Rather than good arithmetic, independent budget analysts called the maneuver ¯a major budget gimmick.¯

¯We could have done better, but last year the Republicans blocked the president¯s job plan, costing the economy more than a million new jobs. So here¯s another job score. President Obama: plus 4.5 million. Congressional Republicans: zero.¯
¯ Clinton

Obama¯s jobs plan was more of a rhetorical device, aimed at Republicans, rather than a real plan. He even used the same $1 trillion in previously-agreed savings with Republicans, mentioned above, that was supposed to be in his budget in order to pay for this plan. The jobs plan also would be paid for with the imaginary money from winding down the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. (The administration argued that the budget had never passed, so the money could be used again.)

Get the picture? Clinton praises Obama both for his sound budget math and for his jobs plan, even though the money to fund the budget and the jobs plan is used twice. That certainly doesn't pass the Arkansas 2+2=4 test.

¯During this period, more than 500,000 manufacturing jobs have been created under President Obama. That¯s the first time manufacturing jobs have increased since the 1990s.¯
¯ Clinton

Clinton is referring to the period since February 2010, the administration¯s preferred date for counting employment figures. If you count from the beginning of Obama¯s term, Bureau of Labor Statistics data show that manufacturing jobs have declined by more than 500,000. Manufacturing jobs have been on a long steep decline since the middle of Clinton¯s term.


I suppose it is easy for this guy to lie --and he does it so winningly!! Remember, "I did not have sexual relations with that woman...."
I don't want to post ALL the corrections in one massive post. My understanding is that the print edition of the post had nearly SIX PAGES of corrections on Clinoton's speech.
So, more to come.....

Or check it out on your own:

Another DISMAL jobs report yesterday. Making it even worse was the fact that August's dismal jobs report was adjusted DOWN by over 40,000 jobs, as was July's. So remember when everyone was freaking because of the horrible reports for July and August? Well, they were even WORSE than what was being reported. The GOOD news is, the unemployment rate dropped from 8.3% to 8.1%. The BAD news is, it only dropped because over 360, 000 job searchers decided to stop looking for work and go on 1. Disability 2. Social Security 3. Unemployment or 4. Welfare and Food Stamps.

So the question is, Do we want four more job reports like yesterday's? Or do we want four more YEARS of job reports like yesterday's?
Hmmmmmm.......tough decision......

ABC NEWS: "American employers cut back sharply on hiring last month, crushing hopes that the job market was improving and putting more pressure on the Federal Reserve to give the sluggish economy another jolt.

The Labor Department said Friday that employers added just 96,000 jobs in August, down from 141,000 in July and too few to keep up with population growth. The unemployment rate fell to 8.1 percent from 8.3 percent, but only because many people gave up looking for work and therefore weren't counted in the government's calculation."

I would prefer 4 more years, thank you. Particularly since the alternative under Mittens would be 4 years of catastrophic job loss and an eventual return to slavery (all colors this time!) under the 1%.

BTW, Mikey. I don't often read this thread unless I'm bored. So forgive me if I'm asking a question that's already been made clear here. What is your opinion of same sex marriage?

I doubt he will answer your question RE: Gay marriage. He has been asked that before but ignores it. In one post he very casually told us what he thought of same sex marriage.He is AGAINST gay marriage but he is for civil unions. The Gays need to learn to take what is given to them and be grateful. He also 'claimed' to have many gay friends. LOL! He took A LOT of heat and his hatred and ignorance was on full display. The troll actually said that on a Broadway Message board. Oh, and he is a school teacher.......and has lots of gays as friends........... LOL! (idiot!)

Quick question: Four years ago, we were losing something like 800,000 jobs a month. This month? We gained jobs. As many as we'd like? No, but we gained.

So my question -- which do you prefer? Don't give me a bs answer about ratios or proportions - just straight up - which do you prefer - losing or gaining jobs?

Mikey has never been anyone's friend here. He is against gay marriage,obviously does not feel gay people are equal,his views on the arts and NEA, on universal healthcare,taxing the wealthy, minorities and immigration, and so on are so out there, I have to keep asking. WTF does he have in common with ANYONE on a Broadway message board? Many suspect Mikey does not believe a word he ditto spews that he is actually as liberal as anyone else, just a bored troll looking to stir the pot. I think he is just a compulsive liar and a nut. He can't even keep his lies straight.He often contradicts things he says and when you show him a post in another thread where he says it he will go back, delete or reword the post and deny it. I did this once and the date he deleted it was the day I brought it to light for all to see. He is a coward and will dodge a question or dance around it more than Romney.He can not debate so he cuts and pastes instead. He changes the rules while discussing a an issue and Mikey NEVER ADMITS WHEN HE IS WRONG. NEVER.That's because in his pea brain he is never wrong and if he is than admitting it is a sign of weakness.

EVERYONE HERE finds him irrelevant and always has. He has had many screen names and has been here for years.He is a joke and needs to be treated as such.

Do you REALLY want to compare George W. Bush's economic record to Obama's? REALLY? And I am not talking about cherry-picking the last few months of his presidency after the Democrats in Congress eviscerated our economy.
Be careful, because I am ready to go there!

I swear to GOD, this woman is DUMB AS A POST!!

Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz on Tuesday denied a report from Washington Examiner columnist Philip Klein, who quoted the Florida congresswoman as saying that Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren described Republican policies toward Israel as ¯dangerous¯ for the Jewish state.

"That comment was reported by a conservative newspaper. It¯s not surprising that they would deliberately misquote me.¯

¯ Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz during Fox News interview, Sept. 4, 2012

Wasserman Schultz said the Examiner misquoted her, saying she never attributed the comments to Oren and that she really just said the GOP was treating the Middle East nation ¯like a political football, which is dangerous for Israel.¯ Klein defended his reporting, saying it was accurate and promising to post audio of the congresswoman¯s comments.

The report from Klein quoted Wasserman Schultz saying, ¯We know, and I¯ve heard no less than Ambassador Michael Oren say this, that what the Republicans are doing is dangerous for Israel.¯

The remarks came during a training session at the Democratic National Convention to instruct Jewish Democrats on how to persuade fellow Jewish Americans to vote for Obama, according to the Examiner.

Oren refuted the characterization that Wasserman Schultz attributed to him. He issued a statement Tuesday saying, ¯I categorically deny that I ever characterized Republican policies as harmful to Israel. Bipartisan support is a paramount national interest for Israel, and we have great friends on both sides of the aisle.¯

In a Tuesday interview with Fox News, Wasserman Schultz argued that the Examiner had deliberately misquoted her. ¯I didn¯t say [Oren] said that,¯ she said. ¯And unfortunately, that comment was reported by a conservative newspaper. It¯s not surprising that they would deliberately misquote me. What I always say is that unfortunately the Republicans have made Israel a political football, which is dangerous for Israel. And Ambassador Oren has said that we can¯t ever suggest that there is any daylight between the two parties on Israel because there isn¯t. And that that¯s harmful to Israel. That¯s what I said, and that is accurate.

Klein later posted audio of Wasserman Schultz¯s comments to prove that his quote was accurate.
Watch the video; it shows her denying she ever said it and blaming a right wing newspaper for misquoting her, then we hear her saying what she claims she never said!

Yes, Mikey. I would.

And I'd like you to make the comparison without just quoting someone.

Please tell me how George Bush was better for the economy than Barack Obama.

I can't wait for this.

The coward will run away,ignoring the question entirely.

Or, he will go to his GOP forum, ask the question and ask how he should respond. He will cut and paste OTHER PEOPLE'S RESPONSES and then gloat and shout victory. He'll claim he just owned your ass, you stupid show tune loving gay marriage supporting liberal, and then brag how smart he is and how he won the debate. Just you wait and see.

Why does the Obama administration have such disdain for Israel? Next week, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will be in the USA. He asked to meet with Pres. Obama to discuss Iran's goal of becoming a nuclear power. The Obama administration said they do not have time to meet with him --too busy campaigning. BUT, Pres. Obama will have time to appear on the David Letterman Show!
